Marc Lobliner's epic IFBB pro card journey

Update 6—263 Days Out!

I have actually come down a bit to the 222-225 range but it is what it is. I spent an entire week in Toronto, Canada, and my eating was a bit lacking since my time was lacking as well. It was a very, very successful trip and well worth it. I got my quality calories in when I could and always had Scivation Whey and almonds with me, but in business meetings, I didn’t feel like busting out a meal! It would just not be right.

I am literally a few pounds from stage weight, so I am a legit heavyweight now. My goal has been reached! But the thing about goals is that they are never quite fulfilled. I plan on getting as big and lean as I can while remaining healthy. This is one reason why I have thrown two days of HIIT/Conditioning into my program. I will do this on my off-weight days. I just feel better doing this and would rather eat more to compensate for the increased activity then feel like a big, out of breath idiot! But the great thing is that I am BETTER conditioned at 225 than I was at 180! I am in great shape!

Here is a current shot. Since I was away with no one to take pictures, we will have to settle for this one this week. But the good news is, in my opinion, this is the best that I have ever looked!

Marc Lobliner week 6

Again, my future is as uncertain as Obama’s second White House Term. I don’t know if it will happen! 2012 is my year for sure, but 2011 is up in the air. Like I said before, I will be shredded for The Uprising on April 2 in Plattsburg, NY. If I am happy with what I can bring, I will rock a national level show as a glute-SHREDDED heavyweight!

Until that time, it is full steam ahead and GROW TIME! How exciting this is! I have never truly bulked before like this, and the fact that I am staying so lean is even more awesome!

As for lifestyle, it was Christmas pageant time!

Cardio and Diet

As I have stated, I learned that low intensity cardio doesn’t do nearly as much for fat loss or conditioning as HIIT. Thus, I will perform this routine twice per week on non-weight days. After four sessions, I feel AMAZING!

  • HIIT On Elliptical: -5 minute warm up at 10 out of 25 speed then... -10 intervals with 20 out of 25 speed sprint for 15 seconds and 8 out of 25 rest for 45 seconds.
  • 10 minutes (low intensity, steady state cardio) LISS on stepmill.
  • 5 sets of 20 2-arm kettlebell swings with 50lb bell.
  • 5 sets to failure with 60lbs on Hammer Strength ab machine.
  • 3 sets to failure on hanging leg raises.

STRETCHING AND FOAM ROLLER THERAPY.

Note: When traveling with no access to kettlebells, I will do the elliptical part of the program (15 minutes) followed by 15 minutes of LOW INTENSITY CARDIO on a machine of my choosing.

Marc Lobliner's Diet

Last week I missed a few meals and dropped some pounds, so this week all will remain the same as last week!

56 grams protein, 15 grams fat and 60 grams carbs per meal with a special post workout formula to be released later.

Supplements taken are extensive, but I have put together the essentials of what I take year round to stay lean and gain size off-season. Here they are—“The LOBLEAN STACK™”!

  1. Scivation Xtend
  2. Scivation Quake 10.0
  3. Scivation Whey
  4. Primaforce Insopro R
  5. Scivation Essential EFA
  6. Primaforce Max CLA
  7. Scivation Sesamin

I also take among other things:

I take almost everything we offer, but these are the MAIN THINGS!

This week until the end of the year, I will be in my hometown—no traveling! Although this week, we will film epic training videos with MuscleandStrength.com featuring Derek, Rob, Katie Lobliner and myself including an epic EATING CONTEST between the three Scivation executives. Stay tuned for highlights next week! (unless we chicken out, LOL) If you want to see a REAL cheat meal, this will be it!

This week was a success! Although I didn’t GAIN weight, I look a lot better and I did some FANTASTIC business and spent amazing family time. Balance is KEY to successful bodybuilding. Until next time, keep training hard, getting it done, and be sure to follow me on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Marc-Lobliner/321875859763!
